Nothing beats making your kids proud!

When they're 4 and 6 it's pretty easy. This past week I completed a project for each of their schools. A permanent mural of a "Music Tree" at Milan Children's Preschool and a snowman at Paddock Elementary (illustrating what he does at night when you are sleeping) per the children's book Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner.

A series of small poppies and an art center....

Yes, I have been painting this month! A series of smaller poppy pieces with a larger work in mind. This one is my favorite and has already found a home! Also, I have a hand in bringing an art center to life in my small town of Milan, MI. One of the flip sides to these hard economic times are that people have slowed down a bit. They have time, space and materials to share. A handful of local artists and community folks are making this all happen. To check out the progress on this project go to Milan Art Center.
